Lady Gelis MacKenzie yearns for love, the everlasting kind. Her father, hesitant to all suitors, is determined to keep her close and at home. Until a long-standing debt is called upon to be collected, and her father's honor must obey it. Gelis has already had a vision of her suitor, a darkly seductive man, with wounds that run deep. When she finally meets her betrothed and learns of his family's curse that has haunted them for generations, she determines that curses are not to be believed. With two previous wives in the ground, Ronan MacRuari, known also as the Raven, weds Gelis only to satisfy his clan. He knows that loving her could unleash the curse and put her in mortal danger. But as he comes to know her, and their passionate desires flare, he begins to wonder if Gelis isn't the key to lifting the curse that has plagued them. Determined to protect her at all costs, he'll fight the dangerous forces that threaten her, even if it means closing off his heart to what it truly wants.Read more ›
Sometimes it's the title of the book that makes you want to buy but this title is misleading in that the hero never seduces the heroine, he doesn't have to because there's no real conflict of any consequence between them. In fact you will be 300+ pages into this 364 page story before the hero actually beds his "bride". If I remember correctly there are about 3 kisses, the bedding and about half another intimate scene and that's all you get. I wouldn't have minded at all at the lack of "steamy moments" if there had been a better build up of sexual tension but that was missing for me.
There is the one scene at the very end of the book that was semi-exciting when the hero confronts his foe(s) but that doesn't save the story, at least for me.
This author consistently gets good reviews and has deserved them but unfortunately, I didn't feel this book stood up well to her past efforts.
However, the twice widower is placed in a quandary when he must marry a MacKenzie to pay off a family debt to the clan. Laird MacKenzie sends a euphoric Lady Gelis to be The Raven's third bride. She has the gift of sight and has seen her intended in a vision. She prepares to bring sunshine into his heart while confronting the dark forces of evil who need her dead in order to possess the Raven Stone that MacRuari owns.
SEDUCING A SCOTTISH BRIDE is a great paranormal historical romance starring two caring individuals whose love puts them at odds with each other. He would rather be celibate than place his Lady Gelis in harm; she would rather battle the entire forces of hell than give up her love. Fans will read this in one delightful sitting so set aside the time.
Gelis MacKenzie is one of the most desirable heiresses in all the Western Highlands. She is the youngest and much adored daughter of the indomitable Black Stag of Kintail, Duncan MacKenzie, who was the hero of Welfonder's novel DEVIL IN A KILT. Unfortunately, Gelis has been branded unmarriageable, but not for lack of masculine interest. No matter how lofty the ancestry, how deep the purse, or how mighty the sword arm, nary a one of her suitors is good enough for her father. Although he loves Gelis fiercely and knows he must someday see her settled and wed, Duncan isn't quite ready to let her go.
But now Duncan has received an offer for Gelis's hand in marriage that he is honor-bound to accept-and it comes from the worst possible quarter. The suitor, Ronan MacRuari of Castle Dare, is the last man Duncan MacKenzie would wish for a son-in-law. Known as the Raven, Ronan is the scion of a dark clan that has been marked by a deadly curse.Read more ›
